With neither pen nor brush
but thought in mind I use as pawn
I paint the things I want to be
And so my world is drawn

Some draw the world with hunger
using lust to veil their vice
Some draw the world with sweetness
men will follow cheese as mice

Some draw the world with flattery
for words do work quite well
Some draw the world with vision
we are captured by their spell

Some draw the world with duty
using guilt to make their bid
Some draw the world with love
down slopes of passion most will skid

Some draw the world by force
with muscles and a heavy hand
Some draw the world with patience
tides in time must meet the land

And others still will draw
but never raise a pen or brush
But headlong to them lemming-like
all wished-for things will rush!

How are you drawing the world? (By "draw" I mean "attract" or pull to you the things you want.) There are many was to draw the world. You can draw the world by force and take what you want. You can use guilt and obligate the world to you. You can simply give and allow the ebb and flow of life to draw the world back to you. These and more constitute the many strategies people use to get what they want. Yes you can draw with patience or in haste, with love or through guilt, with force or through the willingness of others. But know that despite all your actions, the only palette and tools you will have at your disposal are those that your thoughts create. So, how will you draw the world you want to see today?
